During the second year of their lives, Canada Geese
find themselves a mate. The female lays 4-8 eggs with
both parents protecting the nest while the eggs incubate.
During that time, they lose their flight feathers, so that
they cannot fly until after their eggs hatch.
This period lasts for 25-28 days.
